As July comes to an end, there has been a rise of 6% in countrywide rainfall. The unusually long active monsoon, which lasted for 35 days, is now entering the weak phase and is expected to do so by August 6 or 7, 2023. However, the India Meteorological Department still predicts at least another week of downpours in some states.
In Northwest India, including East Uttar Pradesh, East Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, West Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and Delhi are likely to witness heavy to very heavy showers until August 3, 2023. The Met Department for Central India predicts thunderstorms and lightning activities in East Madhya Pradesh and North Chhattisgarh for the next 5 days and over Northwest Madhya Pradesh on August 30, 2023.
In East India, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Odisha, along with Northeast India's Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura, will face isolated heavy rainfall until Thursday. For West India, light to moderate rainfall, along with isolated heavy rainfall, is likely to continue over Konkan & Goa and Madhya Maharashtra during the next 5 days. The South Gujarat Region will see similar conditions on July 30, 2023.
In South India, heavy downpours are expected in Telangana on August 1, 2023, and Coastal Karnataka on August 2 and 3, 2023. Meanwhile, hot and humid weather conditions are predicted for Tamil Nadu on July 30 and 31, 2023. The ongoing monsoons have disrupted many lives. Landslides and floods have become significant issues in hilly regions, and Cyclone Biparjoy in parts of Gujarat has caused financial problems and power cuts.
Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, on the 103rd episode of Mann Ki Baat, addressed the issue of natural disasters caused by the current rainy season. On July 30, 2023, Mr. Modi emphasized the importance of developing sensitivity and readiness in supporting each other through difficult situations. Local populations, along with the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel and local administration, have been able to mitigate the effects of natural calamities to a certain extent.
